A Novel Method for Generating Benchmark Functions Using Recurrent Neural Network

In recent years numerous evolutionary algorithms have been proposed to optimize multi–modal problems. These algorithms test the performance by benchmark functions for simulating real-world problems. However, the benchmark functions don’t have enough similarity and complexity compared to real world. Thus, Recurrent Benchmark Generator (RBG) is proposed in this paper to generate complex and different benchmark functions. This generator obtains a mass of modals by recurrent neural network, which are added various fluctuations of normal benchmark functions to keep a balance between complexity and gradient. The experimental results indicate that the novel approach produces more complex benchmark functions which are more conformed to real world problems.
